The Chapel also doubles as the Choral Room.

Fine sound, lighting, and video recording systems enhance the functionality of this Fine Arts building centerpiece. 



The Barton Music MIDI Lab

Midi LabThe Barton Music Technology MIDI Lab is an eight station computer lab (MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface and is the way that you can get a synthesizer and a computer to talk to one another). Through a generous gift from the Barton Foundation, each computer in the lab has been recently replaced and equipped with new Roland 61-key Juno synthesizers, headphones, and microphones. Students are able to use the latest version of the proffesional music notation software 
Sibelius and practice their harmony and ear training skills with Auralia Musition software. SmartMusic is also available to students in the selected practice areas and on the cloud. The MIDI lab is for use by Barton students requiring the unique capabilities of this type of learning environment.
